Headword: *)echgro/mhn
Adler number: epsilon,1714
Translated headword: I awakened, I woke up
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] I was awakening.[1]
Aristophanes [writes]: "and then I woke up."[2] In reference to those being deceived. For when Dionysus has proclaimed that he destroyed 13 enemy ships in the sea-battle,[3] Herakles[4] adds, "and then I woke up!" Mocking Dionysus, he is saying, "and I rose up from my dreams;" making clear that a vision in sleep brought about these things. [This comes] from those who are speaking falsehoods intentionally, as it is made clear that what is said resembles a thing seen in sleep.

[1] Second aorist, middle indicative, of e)cegei/rw, glossed with the corresponding imperfect (as in the scholia to Aristophanes: see below).
[2] Aristophanes, Frogs 51 (web address 1); cf. kappa 914. What follows is from the scholia there.
[3] The Athenian victory at Arginusae (406 BCE); cf. alpha 3778. Also: alpha 3111 note, epsilon 1136 note, delta 234, epsilon 3234, epsilon 3657 note, omicroniota 101. The text uses a Greek numeral (13 = ig') [Smyth ยง347.]
[4] The attribution of this half-line is uncertain: Herakles, Dionysus (continued), or -- the modern preference -- Xanthias.
